Harlequin Books

Computer specialist Lucy Gunter was determined to uncover the blackmailer sending threatening e-mails to a NASCAR driver. She knew that for every dirty little secret, there was always a trail left behind. But exposing the culprit was as difficult as keeping her mind off charismatic Sawyer Branch, whose routine visits to the sick children at the hospital where she worked touched her heart. As she grew closer to Sawyer—and edged closer to the identity of the blackmailer—Lucy sensed that there was far more to Sawyer than met the eye.…

Little did she know that Sawyer was hiding something from her— and he’d do almost anything to keep her from finding out!

I’m a huge NASCAR fan so I read carefully for all the technical information to be correct and this entire series is true to the sport. Good story line. I highly recommend it!


Absolutely Fabulous

“Some secrets are never meant to be discovered…”

Lucy Gunter is a computer guru, a math wiz, and a NASCAR fan. She’s also hurting after breaking up with a race driver who she’d hoped was the one. She tries to swear off everything surrounding the sport, but somethings are easier said than done.

When Sawyer Branch asks her to lunch she willingly accepts – after all, he’s volunteered at the hospital where she works, and though his family is part of NASCAR, Sawyer is a math geek working on his PhD – a polar end of the racing world.

But Sawyer has a secret – one that goes deeper than just working on a friend’s thesis on counting cards in blackjack and using the money to pay off a loan – a loan that if left unpaid would only exacerbate the scandal around his family. A secret that will jeopardize his future with the lovely Lucy.

Lucy is falling for Sawyer – he’s everything and more. But when her friend asks her to use her computer skills to track down an email blackmailer, doubts start to surface. She doesn’t want to believe he could have anything to do with the horrible threats.

But like most secrets, they never stay quiet. Can Lucy open her eyes and keep her heart in tack? Can Sawyer resolve the problems with gambling and save his future without loosing the one person who completes him?

Read Michele Dunaway’s fast paced, thrilling ride around the track of love, loss and redemption!
